Long-standing major questions in auxin biology are now being answered through the latest discoveries and characterizations of auxin receptors and transporters. An F-box protein TIR1 and its close homologs are emerging as potent auxin receptors, which directly modulate the degradation of transcriptional repressors for auxin-responsive genes. The membrane proteins for polar auxin transport, intuited by Darwin almost 130 years ago, have been characterized over the past decade and implicated in… CONTINUE READING
